Audible Editor Reviews

Four of the Holmes canon's more memorable tales including favorites "The Scandal in Bohemia" and "The Five Orange Pips," are read with skill and style. Classical music sets the tone and complements the extraordinary work of David Timson. Characterization is key to enjoying these adventures, and Timson brings dozens of characters to life, none more real than Holmes himself. The lively portraits have variety and distinction. They remain memorable, but don't take listeners out of the story. Timson's experience with recording the entire canon of Holmes adventures insures consistent excellence.

Maybe not the best collection

Now I like a good mystery and normally quite enjoy a bit of Sherlock Holmes but this collection seemed a bit wishy washy compared to others. The stories themselves are ok but they did seem to rather merge into one, especially when I listened for a second time. Nothing stood out as much as it could.
The delivery was good and the audio quality was ok, if not a little muffled. I found I had to turn up the volume more than normal which is not great if listening in bed.
I'll give this one 3 out of 5 as the quality was lacking
